Planning and executing a move is stressful for everybody. For Seniors who are retiring to move closer to family or who need to move into a long-term care facility, the process can be incredibly overwhelming. Not only does moving require downsizing, but it also requires carefully sorting through a lifetime's worth of memories and belongings. 

When it's time for you to make a life transition, you deserve to have an experienced Long Island long-distance moving company with you every step of the way. Professional movers can help make your transition more manageable, but you can also follow other tips to reduce your stress. 

Choose a Company You Can Communicate With

Communication is an essential part of any move. With a long-distance move, it is crucial that you can communicate with your movers. Whether you prefer phone calls, text messages, emails, or video calls, you need to find a moving company that communicates the same way you do. Then, if issues arise during your move, you can contact your movers and quickly resolve the problems.

Leave Enough Time to Downsize and Sort

Downsizing is a difficult process. Trying to sort through all of your belongings in just a few weeks can make it even more overwhelming. Providing yourself with enough time to properly sort all of your sentimental belongings will processing the challenging emotions will leave you with peace of mind knowing you made the right decisions. Instead of throwing your belongings away, you can consider donating them to local charitable organizations. 

Utilize Professional Packing Services

One of the most time-consuming parts of moving is packing. You need to ensure your belongings are securely packed to keep them safe during transport while also making sure they are labeled and organized to find them when you need them. Hiring professional packers can reduce your stress and the amount of time you spend packing and unpacking your belongings. Instead of worrying about packing, you can spend time with your family or getting to know your new neighborhood. 

Hire a Company Experienced in Medical Equipment Moving

If you live with a chronic health condition, you will want to make sure your medical equipment is moved safely. For one, it is expensive. Second, you want it to work when you need it. Not all moving companies have the tools and equipment necessary to safely transport medical equipment over long distances. Choosing a moving company with the required resources and experience needs to be your top priority. 

Keep Your Pets Comfortable 

Just like humans, your pets can also get stressed during a move. The best way to keep both of your comfortable is by transporting your pets yourself. You can place them in their carrier and then secure them in the backseat. If they don't use a carrier, make sure they are secured in your vehicle. You can reduce their stress even more by surrounding them with their favorite toy or a blanket.
